Calendar Notice for Bonnie & Clyde July 11 – August 2, 2014
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (June 4, 2014) – TheatreWorks New Milford is proud to announce the East Coast premiere of Adam Peck's historically-based fall drama, BONNIE & CLYDE.
Based on the true story, BONNIE & CLYDE is an intimate re-telling of the final hours of two young people who stopped at nothing to realize their American dreams. Crossing the border of an unnamed state in a stolen Ford V-8 with a trunk of sawn-off shotguns and bootleg whiskey, Bonnie and Clyde (Marilyn Hart of New Milford and Adam Stordy of Sandy Hook) have found one last place to hide. Time is ticking – they're on the run from the law and from reality, and it won't be long before one of them catches them first. With humor, desperation, and tenderness, these legendary outlaws are made human again, resolving their issues and getting their affairs in order. This critically-acclaimed play debuts 80 years after the infamous couple's final days.
BONNIE & CLYDE is under the direction of Joseph Russo of New Milford. The production is not based on the 1967 film or the 2011 Broadway musical of the same name.
